Don’t you love when you whatever you have planned for dinner doesn’t happen at all? The chicken wasn’t thawed in time for us to cook it last night, so I was going to make a Caprese Grilled cheese, but Brent was craving burgers. We went to Flatire Burgers and I had their yummy Yellowfin Tuna Salad with Wasabi Ranch. I will be making the Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo tonight though, and these are the noodles I’m using.
Yesterday at the gym I did 8.5 miles on the elliptical and burned 1000 calories. But I’ll tell ya, I’m getting discouraged in this weight loss. I really haven’t lost more than a few pounds in the last couple of months. I know one of them was the holiday season, and my goal there was not really to lose any during that time, but to not gain any weight and eat in moderation. That I was successful at. But it has been a month and I’m only down two pounds. I know it is a slow process, but I am really sticking to my diet, and I have upped my cardio to challenge myself. I’m getting frustrated. I talked with my doctor about it yesterday, and she said my previous bloodwork showed everything was normal, and that I was doing everything right. She was telling me that sometimes when you lose a significant amount of weight you may get to a point and plateau for longer than you expect, and to switch things up a bit. It was good to hear that if she had passed me on the street she wouldn’t have recognized me, and that I am obviously much healthier than I was before. But still no magical answer! I’ll be trying more kinds of cardio and talking to my trainer about what else I can do, but it is really hard to hear that you are doing everything right, and more than most people, but seeing no results.
Gotta get these rugrats dressed and ready for the gym! It’s raining here, so we will probably be doing a movie and craft day at our house.
What is your backup plan when dinner doesn’t work out?
What do you do on a rainy day with your little ones?
